Slow progress

Well, that roving is not going to be a completed yarn by the end of the weekend – there is too much else getting in the way. I did spin yesterday, but packed it up early when invited to play Pub Night with Mr L. We cracked open the beer, baked a few nibbles, and dusted off the bar billiard table. It caused my back some grief so we only played 4 frames but… I won 3:1 ! We had a difficult time persuading the cats that their input was unnecessary.

The roving is about 70% done but I shall have to give up time today or tomorrow to walk to the shop, and I also need to sort out my tax return. I think I shall set a new goal of completing the spinning by the end of the weekend. That might be achievable… depending entirely on whether Mr L wants his revenge on the ball table tonight. The family that plays together, stays together and all that.

    Serious envy at you having a Bar Billiards table. I used to play at college until they refurbished the pub to make it more attractive to students and got rid of the table. One day…

    we found ours on ebay and as it was only about 20 miles away we were able to go see it before purchasing. It came from Castle Douglas – we collected the table and ten went to the brewery for 24 bottles of beer and had a great pub night back home. 🙂 Sadly we play all too infrequently

    looking at current prices, I can say that we got ourselves a real bargain. It is not a slate bed, though
